Re: Eoan re-release: Call for testing

<snip> Interesting - this does actually use those two pins for controlling the onboard RGB LED. https://pinout.xyz/pinout/fan_shim Ahh, that may well explain things. Odd choice given they're the serial pins by default (on Raspbian too!), but I guess using anything that doesn't have ALT functions wo...

Re: Eoan re-release: Call for testing

Does anything need to be done to make apt update / upgrade / dist-upgrade work correctly with this image? Every time I run them, I get nothing upgraded. Is it just because it has no updates thus far? Should work out of the box, and being a re-spin it'll have all the updates for Eoan on that release...

Re: Eoan re-release: Call for testing

Also, on a non-critical note... Why does the font change during the boot process as the screen is scrolling all of the verbiage? It starts out fairly bold, and then switches to a finer/lighter font. Just curious about this. Never did this on raspbian, and I don't get all the scrolling text on my ub...

One more update - it may not have been the LED (neopixels) mod. I removed that completely and put another case on it, and the issue continued whenever I put the cover on the case. After a bit more tinkering, I think the u-boot sees something like keypresses when i put downward pressure on the fansh...

Greetings Ubuntu users! As many will know, the launch of Eoan with Pi 4 support didn't exactly go to plan ! We've been quietly working away at a re-spin of the release with a kernel that properly supports the 4Gb variant of the Pi 4 under the 64-bit architecture. In the course of this, several other...

Awesome. Thanks Dave. I've had issues with dependency installation before, but only in odd cases. I regularly install ipython with pip on a new Raspbian image and it's never been a problem until now.

Re: Pure Python camera interface

Picamera 1.13 is now released! As usual, it'll be a few days until it hits the Raspbian repos but it's on PyPI now, and the docs should be updated in a mo. The major news this time around is a serious re-working of the lower level mmalobj API. I'm guessing most people haven't touched this so a quick...

Re: Python or C++ for fast recording?

Just to add a little to this topic: when it comes to simply recording data from the camera the choice of language will make little/no difference to the speed you can reach. All the serious processing happens on the GPU, which then sends packets of output to whatever you've got in userspace. So wheth...

Re: New 8MP Camera - Q&A thread

I have a question regarding the older V1 camera. Before I upgraded firmware and userspace stuff for the V2 camera, maximum FPS supported was 49FS at 1296x730 (mode 5), when setting a higher FPS, it would either revert back to 640x480 and scale-up or give an error message (don't remember). Now it se...

Re: New 8MP Camera - Q&A thread

One possible explanation is that you weren't using the "real" maximum resolution. Prior to picamera 1.11 being released, the MAX_RESOLUTION value was fixed at (2592, 1944), i.e. the max resolution of the V1 module. Hence even if you had a V2 module attached and set MAX_RESOLUTION you'd still just g...
